(faux)H is a series of six hands-on workshops held at the Wyckoff farmhouse Museum, exploring traditional farm based skills: hand sewing, natural dying and preservation. Employing dye plants and crops grown on the Wyckoff farm, situated in the middle Brooklyn, (faux)H will be a collaborative experiment in the lost art of learning-by-doing. Join artist, Lisa Sikorski on a journey of learning about the slow process of making by hand and from the earth. Workshops are suitable for participants ages 13 and up.

Hand Sewing & Embroider: Have you ever wanted to make something without technology, the slowest possible way? Then we have just the thing! All it really takes is your hands, a needle, thread and  fabric and we can make magic. We will learn how to design and assemble simple embroideries and designs. Come prepared to use your hands, work patiently and make yourself proud.

How to sign up: Participants may sign up for one or all workshops. Email for more information about the program or to register.
